    Okay......it's a quick rant.....
    .
    I was driving at 10am Sunday - on the area's "Main Drag".
    It's 3 lanes in both directions ---
    you can find EVERYTHING along this route !
    Malls, Home depot, Every Eating Franchise possible, gas, Car Sales,etc.
    .
    How I never got actually hit/slammed was incredible luck !
    #1.....Drivers changing lanes without looking.( about 4 or 5 times !)
    #2.....tailgating......."If I drive up his @ss - he'll speed up - I'm in a hurry !"
    #3.....Why do I need a Turn Signal ?.....Everyone should know where I'm going !"
    .
    I actually spoke out loud to myself -
    "What is going on, today ?....this is insane !"

    #4 people making Rights on Reds w/o taking the time to turn thier freaking head left (More than a millisecond) and see if it's clear or not and decipher the speed of the cars in that lane.
    How some of the Snowbird drivers I see down here every season managed to drive the interstates to get here in one piece is amazing..I bet the truckers have some stories..

    I effing hate being out in public in December:grrr:

    On Tuesday at Costco, I was hit. Me, standing in the checkout line and not moving. Hit by a lady in a cart coming up the line. Leaving the store, someone turned into my lane right in front of me. I stopped (thank goodness) and honked, and the idiot driver and passenger both gave me blank "huh, what did I do" looks. YOU'RE IN MY LANE YOU IDIOT. MOVE.

    Plus, I honked. Not a lot of people honk here. Mostly us damn yankees:wink2: But this damn yankee uses her turn signal, stays in her lane, and stops for a freaking school bus (oh, yeah, last week, I was honked at - ha - because I stopped AS REQUIRED BY LAW - for a school bus flashing its red lights)

    I was thinking the same thing, those kinda people just need to get ran over so they cant reproduce anymore.

    I don't understand how people can be so stupid and careless when it comes to driving. I've been driving for 15 years now and I have not been in a single wreck in my life, and I live in a state where there's snow on the road 5 months outa the year.
